The Saft BESS provides battery storage technology designed for extreme cold environments. It is the first container system of its kind in North America to utilize the Intensium® Max+ 20M battery container, which provides 950 kWh and has the ability to operate in environments reaching ambient temperatures of -58°F, the delivered BESS also includes a 1.2 MW EssPro™ Power Conversion System and grid connect transformer, supplied by ABB. The key benefits to the Kotzebue Electric Association (KEA) microgrid will be the ability to ride through fluctuations in wind output and to time-shift excess wind energy, providing significant reductions in diesel consumption.
